9. Type your text.

10. Press Enter to end the line of text.
11. Repeat Steps 6 through 10 for each line in the list.
To make adjustments, select the list as a block (see Chapter 6 ) and use the mouse to adjust the tab
stops on the ruler. As you move the tab stops, a dashed line extends through your text, showing you
where the text lines up. Or, to be more precise, you can use the Tabs dialog box, as covered later in

Figure 12-6: Right tab stops right-align the second column of this list.
1. Start out with a blank line of text.
2. Ensure that the Tab gizmo on the ruler shows the right tab stop.
3. Click the mouse at the 4-inch position on the ruler.
The position is just a guess at this point. Later, you can adjust the right tab stop setting to a more
visually appealing one.
4. Type the left column text.
